A friend was having a birthday so I figured I’d make something different — and found it in this recipe for cream cheese brownies.

I had never made them before but they were pretty easy.  I just poured 1/2 the chocolate batter and then all of the cream cheese filling and then the remaining chocolate batter and baked.  It probably would have been prettier if I would have done an alternating spoonful of each, but I think these turned out well.

To be honest, I did steal a small bite and thought they were pretty good.  The cream cheese filling gave the brownies a rich flavor and smooth texture.  The brownies were extremely moist and delicious.

I would definitely make these again!
